Grandmother Poem #1

The first poem on this page is about Mary. Mary is, shall we say, a bit uptight.

Here is her poem:

whistle

Grandma Mary
Have you heard of Grandma Mary?
Always watchful, always wary.
Wears a nightstick on her belt,
A rescue whistle wrapped in felt.
She’s a woman somewhat scary.
Cheerful, fearful, Grandma Mary.

Grandmother Poem #2

The next example is about Kate. She is a young-at-heart grandma who likes her exercise. But her diet leaves a bit to be desired.

Grandma Kate
Have you heard of Grandma Kate?
Bicycles across the state,
Has a backpack filled with soda,
Rides all day to meet her quota.
Stops a while to take a slurp,
And as she rides, you’ll hear her burp.

Grandmother Poem #3

The next is about Gramma Joan, who is about to be sucked right into her TV set. A fervent fan of The Shopping Network, this lady has found a home in her TV set.

Grandma Joan
Have you heard of Grandma Joan?
Now that her ten kids are grown,
She spends each day with her TV
With soaps and scores and shopping sprees.
So Grandpa pays with silent moan.
That glazed-eyed, crazed-eyed Grandma Joan.

Grandmother Poem #4

So many children would like to have a grandmother like Liza, who loves pizza!

pizza

Grandma Lisa
Have you heard of Grandma Liza?
Likes to feed her family pizza.
Orders from the corner store.
Every day she orders more,
All to keep her family pleased.
Instead, they’re mozzarella cheesed.
